Empty Gallery / 2013. Emptiness and silence from Slovak National Gallery

Olja_Triaska_Stefanovic_7Due to political games and changes, Slovak National Gallery is for five years waiting for its reconstruction. Nowadays, the biggest part of National Gallery is empty and closed, without art, without possibility to show culture heritage. My images of emptiness and silence from Slovak National Gallery are made just after they moved and closed gallery. Walls are empty, flowers are dried,  deposit and archive without artefacts… reminiscences of past time we can still smell but the future of the most important gallery in Slovakia is not clear. Walls are waiting.
